Imps Hold Tigers By The Tails
The Song I’ve got a Tiger by the tail, made famous by Buck Evan’s in 1964 sums this one up perfectly. Would-be Sincil Saviour Gary Simpson and Impdom, hearts in mouths, have been on an emotional roller-coaster these last few years. But ours is a love affair and a road that will never run smooth akin to the soulful side of the country and Western genre, that is in reality the White man’s blues. Simmo, is mindful unquestionably right, to suggest Stockport’s survival is in Hyde’s interests as the Hatters took 1700 there new years day. So the question is, is it job done for Scott McNiven’s consolidation achieving Tigers, or will they to do their bit to keep a lucrative Cheshire derby for next season? Scott’s change from an attacking 4-3-3 in January, to a traditional 4-4-2, saw an upturn in form despite the odd hammering at Kidderminster (0-4), Alfreton (1-5), Gateshead (0-3) and Nuneaton (1-3) last week. So this game could be high-scoring either way with Jevons and Blinkhorn up front.

Hyde sit 15th, three points above the Imps, by virtue of two more wins and two more defeats. The aim in this first season in the BSP was one of consolidation, following promotion from the BSN, Scott McNiven can be mighty proud of this achievement although doing his bit to keep that lucrative Cheshire derby for next season, will ensure the Tigers will be roaring on Saturday.

The Tigers’ Form
Not unlike ourselves, April has failed to compete with a fabulous March for the Tigers. The home form has been particularly impressive with 4 wins and one defeat from the last 5. Ex-Imp Louis Almond will be a particular threat down their left.
